    Hey everyone, just wondering if anyone has their UCA interview this Tuesday or has already had theirs? Having a big panic about portfolio, format of the interview, etc..

    A friend had the interview a couple of weeks ago and she said everyone was wearing skinny jeans or shorts and tights which has totally thrown me off because I was planning on wearing a simple smart black dress because so many people I know have had to wear suits to interviews!!

    If anyone can lend a hand.. what to wear? What did you include in your portfolio? And if yours is the afternoon on Tuesday too private message me, I cant get on to the ucreative portal so panicking cos I can't check what time we should arrive beforehand!!

    Any help would be much appreciated xx

    i had mine at epsom for fashion management and marketing and it was pretty casual clothing. Just look really fashionable

    urm i brought a variety in my portfolio but the woman who was interviewing a group of us just asked to see one thing from it that we had to speak about briefly, so i chose what i thought was most relevant to the course.

    also, we had like a little questionnaire to do about why we want to go there, how would we deal with epsom and future goals etc. but as you're doing a different course to me, your interview may be different..

    if you can't reach your portal, email them because mine stopped working too

    Hope i've helped!

    Erm i would put in any business essays you've done that may relate to marketing. at my interview the woman asked to us to describe one piece from our portfolio and i showed my kitkat marketing essay and other people showed their business stuff so you don't have to include art, but if you have anything that might relate to fashion or marketing then that would help

    yeah i think it would be good to include thoses sketches even though the woman i had didn't even look through our portfolios lol... Yeah i think if you do a shop report and maybe choose that to talk about would be good because you don't do any artsy subjects, it will show them that you are interesred in it.

    Interview was alright!!! yea
    but didn't go on like i'd expected. Thought one on one interview would have been better!!! but the thing i liked about it was like you said last time interviewer/tutor herself she was interesting. really did made us feel comfortable. loved her, she seems nice!!
    well now waiting for them to reply. hope for the best keeping my fingers crossed xxxx
